1. Good News

The Obama Misadministration's job jihad appears to have lost momentum. After launching several massive job destruction programs, the psychopaths have taken a break. Instead of the normally increasing unemployment, last month we broke even. The job losses did not, for the first time in a long time, exceed the gains in jobs.

2. Product Highlight

Record every moment. This handy keyfob with hidden camera and hidden microphone is ideal for:
  • Job interviews. They will be amazed at how much you "remember" in your followup correspondence and phone calls.
  • Hiring interviews. Document why you didn't hire this bozo (and why you hired that brilliant person who remembered so much from the interview!).
  • Documenting unwritten promises from that sneaky sales guy. Yes, actually, he did promise you free deluxe floor mats....
  • Documenting abuse conducted by rogue employees of the DEA, TSA, IRS, etc., who think just because they are smashing cell phones they won't get caught on video.
  • Getting information from that uninsured dude who rear-ended you but refuses to give you even his phone number. Without his knowing it. Make a covert video (with sound), give it to the cops. They'll have his voice and face, plus license number and image of the car.

3. Brainpower tip

In 2009, anti-bankster protesters in Philadelphia were peacefully asserting their (non-existent) First Amendment rights. Yeah, I know. What were they thinking? Here in the USA, you simply do not disparage those who own what (barely) passes for a government.

These peasants were punished (see YouTube videos, below) for the "crime" of peacefully protesting the lack of law enforcement and the free reign of an entire class of criminals in the USA.

While the state-run media have been trying to suppress the peasant protests that have been going on since this event, actual news outlets have been carrying these stories.

The response of the state-run media has been to disparage the protestors, as if somehow a person who objects to felonious behavior is in the wrong. Amazingly, there are actually people who expose their brains to this sort of "news." Yes, it's true. Some people just live dangerously. They watch television "news" and read "news" papers.

That's your first tip: Protect your brain from these contamination sources. I trust you are already doing that. So, on to the next item.

Lately, I've been corresponding with a fellow who does not understand the definition of "illegal." For example, most of what the federal government does is illegal. Nearly every law that CONgress has passed in the last 100 years is illegal. Why is this?

To answer why they do it, just follow the money. They are mere employees of psychopaths and criminals. That is so obvious, the real question is "Why aren't members of CONgress doing like NASCAR drivers and wearing the logos of their corporate sponsors?" Then at least we could choose between, say, Exxon and Monsanto.

To answer why these "laws" are illegal, we look to the (former) foundation of federal law in the USA. That is the US Constitution. Anything that conflicts with the Constitution is, by definition, illegal.

So my correspondent comes back at me with irrelevancies. For example, he says he personally never agreed to follow the Constitution so he is under no obligation to follow it. This statement is an example of multiple logical fallacies. Here are two, for example:

  1. Irrelevance. The Constitution does not apply to individuals. It enumerates and limits the powers of the federal govt. So whether he agrees with it or not has nothing to do with what's in it.
  2. Non sequitor. The conclusion does not follow from the postulation.

I bring up these two logical fallacies in particular because they seem to be very much in vogue, right now. Whatever the reason for using these fallacies (e.g., deliberate manipulation or just poor reasoning skills), they don't belong in any serious discussion. The problem, though, is almost any "discussion" falls prey to this kind of foolishness.

The nonsequitor has now been raised to the status of an art form. It's so pervasive, I think there must be nonsequitor schools rising up all over the country. I don't give these any validity, I just say "Does not follow" in response. This means I have very short "conversations" with people who are trying to proselytize using this popular method of non-argument. I just wonder why they bother? It makes them look like they don't believe in their own viewpoints.

Then there's the irrelevancy fad. It reminds me of the bell bottoms craze of the 1970s, and I hope it also goes away.

Do not permit irrelevancies into your thinking. If you do, then your ability to think will be degraded. Irrelevancies are the dog turds of discussion. It's impossible to pick one up by the clean end. You will get some stink on you.

But if so many people trot out irrelevancies, how can you avoid getting the stink? As with dog turds, don't pick them up. Leave them lying where they are, and point out to the other person there's a turd you both need to step around.

If the other person insists on stepping in it and then wiping his foot on your trousers, you have only one option. As soon as he steps in it, walk away.

Now, it may seem harsh to end a conversation or a personal association with someone on this basis. But keep in mind, this isn't just a person who's disagreeing with you. This is a person who deliberately gets crap on himself and then wants to share the stink with you. When you stop this process, you aren't stopping a conversation. There wasn't a conversation in the first place.

Your brain is the only one you'll ever have. Protect it.

 

Here are two YouTube videos, showing the terrorist attacks on protestors in Philly.

4. Finance tip

My sister gets 200 MPG. From her van.

Do you want to drastically reduce how much you spend on fuel? You can, and you don't need:

  • Breakthrough in technology.
  • To buy a coal-powered car (as proposed by Obama, what a moron).
  • Massive taxes taken from you and passed along to Big Oil.
  • A hybrid car, which actually is not energy-efficient (owners of these vehicles could choose to drive less via planning, but instead they buy a car that's energy-intensive to build and then drive MORE miles than they otherwise would thus canceling out, and then some, any reduced oil consumption).

No, you can forego all these things if you simply tap your brain for ideas. Take my sister as an example. She took a job in Tampa. Affordable housing is a long commute from where she works. She figured out how to get 200 MPG on her commute to work. And she's not an engineer.

  1. Her first step was to buy a van.
  2. Her second step was to organize a van pool.

Now 9 coworkers meet at a park and ride. They then pool the long round trip in that van. The MPG per person is more than 200 MPG. Imagine if every commuter got 200 MPG. Thanks to my sister, there are 10 people who do.

What about something as simple as giving up meat? The water and other resources saved are potentially enormous. With the American meat supply too dangerous now for human consumption, the incentive to give up meat is huge. So you save money at the supermarket, dramatically reduce the "embedded water" in your food supply, and dramatically reduce your medical care costs. If giving it up doesn't appeal to you, then consider cutting your meat consumption in half.  

We don't need new technology for us to make huge advances in fuel economy and pollution reduction. As noted earlier, my sister and her van passengers over 200MPG.

Americans can easily cut pollution and disease dramatically simply by making sane food choices. That doesn't take new technology; it just takes sanity. Currently, about 99.99% of Americans fill their shopping carts with pollution-intensive, highly-processed grains and grain derivatives. If only 80% of these people opted out of this abuse, the effect on medical care costs, fuel consumption, pollution, and many other negatives would change profoundly.

5. Security tip

Install a lock on your mailbox. Better yet, don't receive mail at your home address.

These days, almost nothing important comes via USPS so it's not necessary to check the mailbox unless you are actually expecting something. With electronic banking, auto bill pay, etc., most people don't even need a mailbox. Mostly what USPS delivers is junk mail, which you subsequently have to shred and/or toss in the trash.

If you don't want the expense of a PO Box, you can just eliminate having mail sent to you for any of your accounts by going paperless. Make it all e-delivery.

 

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

The holidays are rife with danger for the human body. In the USA, the average person gains ten pounds of body fat during the holiday season (thus the big push in January to "lose weight"). Mostly, it's brown fat and that's the cancer factory variety.

But the fat accumulation isn't the only danger. Most of the "foods" people eat are contaminated with powerful toxins. Commercially available wheat flour, for example, is (by federal law) contaminated with a toxin that promotes prostate cancer. Most pie fillings are contaminated with diabetes-inducing, osteoporosis-inducing high fructose corn syrup. Ladies: Do not let your man eat this crap, as it depresses testosterone. Mothers: Do not let your boys eat this crap, because it's feminizing.

In the interests in keeping you safe for the holidays, I'm sharing my non-toxic pumpkin pie recipe.

Age 50.

 

At www.supplecity.com, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:

  • The best workouts are short and intense.
  • A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction than the typical American diet.

7. Factoid

A snail can sleep for three years. When it comes to stealing your money on behalf of their employers, members of CONgress can't give it a rest.

8. Thought for the Day

There are no right answers to the wrong questions. -- Ursula Kroeber LeGuin (Born: 21 October, 1929).
